So I've just started my online application for 2016/17, which will be my second year.
The NHS pays the first £3,500 or so of my tuition fees from next year onwards, so do I say that I'm funded by the NHS or not? Because when I clicked "yes" it said I wouldn't be apply to for any fees loan from sfe at all- and I need the loan from sfe for £5,500+!!
Also, the system only asked about my income, not my parents' as usual. Is this because I'm 25 now? Or because they have the details from last year's application?
Finally, I was given the option to apply for a higher maintenance loan level of up to about £9k. Is this correct? Because I was under the impression that graduate entry medics only got a tiny amount from 2nd year onwards.

Please select no as you still require funds from SFE. Students from England and Wales can receive the usual package of support available to undergraduates in their first 4 years of study (Maintenance/Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Support such as Means Testing ML, Special Support/Maintenance Grant and DSA if applicable) subject to previous study. This is providing you are an undergraduate and this is your first qualification.
